I also love going to Sunda but time and time again, the service is lacking. Our service during the meal was good but the table back was very rude and sloppy. A couple of times someone asked for something and he didn't acknowledge them, just walked away and notified the server. He also spilled water every time he refilled the glasses and spilled soy sauce on the table. With that being said, the food is always perfect and thats the reason why I continue to go back. Just wished the service was better.

I do not like leaving a bad review. I have many, many friends who run, are servers for, and bartenders at restaurants around the city. It is hard work. Customers can be unreasonable. Some are a**holes. So, with that caveat — something is awry when the server introduces themselves twice in five minutes, in between not bringing drinks. It went downhill from there. Food great. But this is a place where there should be decent if not really good service. Didn’t happen.

We had a great time there. The reason for going was to celebrate a birthday, and the place delivered. Waitress was really interesting, recommended great dishes, and we had a wonderful time there. Second time, and we will be coming back again.

Amazing! Sunda was the best Oriental Restaurant I had ever been; it is just comparable with great Chinese restaurants in China.

A bit surprised to learn the cocktails were not made to order rather are made in batches. First Old Fashion was great but the second one was not. When asked to remake the waitress said it’s all the same batch so shouldn’t taste any different. Food itself was fantastic, esp the Wagyu Crispy Rice and Brussel Sprout Salad!

My girlfriend loved the sharing/splitting encouraged by the restaurant. Kimberly (our waitress) was very efficient and helpful-- she pointed out our new favorite appetizer: the Oxtail potstickers. Sunda has a great ambiance, both elegant and understated. Can't wait to book, again!

I have been to this place many times. This is great place to have good asian food. Plus, service is always excellent whether you go with group of 2 or 12. We celebrated 30th birthday for my sister and it was successfull. Some people arrived almost half hour late and they still accommodate us in busy holiday season without giving us any hard time. This shows the best service. Our server, Johnny was amazing. Overall, i would recommend this place to anyone and would be going there again and again.

Sunda was such a great experience. My family and I went there to celebrate my birthday and we were not disappointed. Almost everything on the menu is made to share with the table. While it is an Asian Fusion and Sushi restaurant, most of the dishes remind me of a tapas place where everyone gets to try out a dish. The head chef, Michael Morales, came out to greet us and even prepared something special for out table. We enjoyed a variety of dishes that day, including Duck Hash, Soft Shell Crab, White Fish with Truffle oil, Tuna Sushi, Brussel Sprouts...too many to remember. All of the food was outstanding! The fish was very fresh and the flavors were savory. We will definitely be back again!

Service this visit was not up to par, but the food remains top notch. Our server forgot to place a drink order at the outset of the meal. One of our appetizers did not arrive before the entrees. Only when I inquired about it after the entrees were finished did the server place the order and bring out the appetizer. Not ideal . . .
